    Clockwise (perceiving and more 'right brained'), and cannot make the dancer turn counterclockwise...... well with that one trick you can do with the picture and focusing a ton I could get her to wobble the other way for a second but that's about it.

    I almost always see counter-clockwise first.

    Sometimes I struggle to switch her to clockwise, but I can do it if I only look at her legs and mentally decide that the leg sticking out is behind instead of in front, and then she switches.

    NeTi is supposed to be clockwise, but I work in engineering, which is very left-brained, and math is my best subject. However, I'm more creative than most engineers, and fairly balanced in my left-right hemispheres, just more practiced with left brain activity.

    I can switch it by closing my eyes for a second. So what?

    Apparently it means you can switch easily between left and right brained thinking. *shrug*

    OK. I'm not sure I believe that. It's an optical illusion. The dancer isn't spinning at all.

    What you described above is exactly how I experienced this test. I'm NeFi yet saw the girl spinning counter-clockwise. Yet this is supposed to be unusual? I guess I am just confused because I consider myself a *strong P*. What am I not understanding here?

    I can't see her going counter clockwise at all, she is definitely going clockwise and I tried for a few minutes to try to see her differently, but I can't.
    Have always been strongly right brain dominant, though I'm really unsure if functions always relate to that for people.

    Edit: Okay, what in God's name are you guys seeing that is making her spin counter-clockwise??? This is maddening! I can not see it!

    I see both. I've taken a few left/right brained tests and I come out exactly 50-50 or the difference is marginal.

    She'll be spinning one way, and then she'll be spinning the other way. I used to do this with 3-d cubes, sort of. Just stare at them and force myself to see inside or outside.

    This time when I looked, I saw counter clockwise. Not sure what I normally see first though.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?
